Dear Worrad,
Thank you very much for your letter of the 2nd January.
I am very sorry you are all having such a wretched time. Apart from forwarding your complaint on, there is little I can do at the moment as we have no aircraft which will be available for training. Later on I hope that “A” Flight aircraft will be available and then we may be able to get some of you back to complete your training here.
Serviceability is always poor at Conversion Units and I should hardly think that the recent weather has been much help for the flying programme.
I hope it won't be long before we manage to get some of you back and in the meantime heres [sic] wishing you a very happy New Year.
Yours
D.W.D.
